This is a bit surprising! The new Panasonic Gm1 got a huge 104 Euro discount right before the release! You can grab it for 595 Euro with lens (instead of the previous 699 Euro) at Amazon Germany (all colors, via DL). Also the grip got a 22 Euro discount (Click here).
It’s a surprise to see a 22% discount before(!) a product gets even shipped for the first time!

There is finally some info about the GM1 availability in US. The camera will ship from December 7 according to Amazon US (Click here). It’s a more general “mid-December” according to BHphoto (Click here). Canadians have even more luck and the Gm1 is already in Stock at Henrys (Click here).
And today there is also a great deal on the Olympus E-M5. You can buy the black body for $767 at Big Value on eBay (Click here).

Seldomscenephotography (Click here) posted that long exposure E-m1 vs E-m5 comparison. And also Photolisticlife (Click here) tested the E-M1 long exposure “issue” that was mentioned on other sites. He says it’s basically a non issue:
“I guess I’m trying to say that 99.9% of people taking 60 second or longer photographs will most likely leave the Noise Reduction on auto therefore making this a non issue. For the rest of you, shoot a dark frame and you can subtract most of the noise out in post processing in no time at all so worry not.”
Admiringlight (Click here) posted a full E-M1 review:
“It’s a lot of money for a mirrorless camera, but given all the features, the extremely tough body with pro-grade weathersealing, the supreme responsiveness, outstanding viewfinder, super deep buffer and excellent autofocus, it’s worth the price.”
And Cameras.reviewed.com (Click here) selected the Olympus E-M1 as camera of the year:
With oodles of manual, customizable control, fantastic image quality, a superb new EVF, and full weather sealing, the E-M1 is a true, professional-caliber mirrorless camera. Paired with Olympus’ new 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens, the E-M1 was our favorite camera of all that we tested in 2013.
